Hull City 2, Liverpool 0: First Thoughts

A genuinely awful Liverpool surrender to Hull City without a fight.

Hull City 2 N’Diaye 42’, Niasse 85’ Liverpool 0

  • PRE-MATCH THOUGHT: If Liverpool are going to pull their season back on track, it will be this game that does it. Here’s hoping for the good Liverpool to reappear.
  • The first ten minutes have been pretty equal, with Hull getting the best chance of the match so far.
  • Coutinho seems to be in that rut he falls into every season where he starts playing like a mere mortal after a long spell of brilliant performances. Not great for the team if this continues.
  • Liverpool have improved, and Mane looks very good. His presence has definitely been missed.
  • Goal N'Diaye 43’ - After a few minutes of good possession towards the end of the half, Hull City grab a goal off of a corner. Mignolet botches the save, allowing N’Diaye to tap it in for the opener. Good grief.
  • HALFTIME: deep sigh
  • Second half has started with Liverpool on the offensive, but nothing has come of it yet.
  • Mane and Lallana nearly get there, but not quite.
  • Sturridge replaces Can, in what could only be an improvement. Still, it looks like the most Liverpool could hope for at this point is to share the points.
  • Goal Niasse 85’ - This is genuinely bleak.
  • FINAL THOUGHT: Well, this is a problem.
